The Advantages of Using Forged Components in the Agricultural Industry

The use of forgings for manufacture of components for the agricultural industry has many advantages. Machinery constructed for the agricultural industry covers tasks such as harvesting, soil preparation, muck spreading and materials handling amongst many other applications. A range of components can be forged for the agricultural industry, including couplings, crankshafts, linkages and connectors.

The advantages of using forgings for these components includes their inherent strength and durability, as forged components will be both stronger and tougher than parts made by other methods. As forged components do not have the same weaknesses caused by porosity found in castings, they’re more durable, which is vital in agriculture where components face a harsh working environment.

So because of these superior properties, forged components for the agricultural industry should last longer than components manufactured using other methods. This means that they are more cost effective over time, as they will not need replacing as often.

We work closely with and alongside some of the UK’s leading manufacturers of farming equipment, delivering a range of products and parts including coupling systems, and pick-up and tow hitches for tractors, trailers, and telehandlers.
